I am trying to setup my own forum with the phpbb source. What i have done are:
1. Install Apache (pacman -S apache) and then uncomment the line:
LoadModule php5_module modules/libphp5.so
in /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf. Apache runs with no problem (/etc/rc.d/httpd start)
2. Install php (pacman -S php) and then uncomment the line:
extension=msql.so in /etc/php.ini
Php has been tested and displayed by web browser with a test.php file:
<title>PHP Test Page</title>
This is Arch Linux, running PHP.
3. Install mysql (pacman -S mysql) and started successful. mysql user and group are found in /etc/passwd and /etc/group.
Install the dbase:
#mysql_install_db --datadir=/var/lib/mysql --user=mysql
Add root user:
#mysqladmin -u root password '1'
Login into mysql successful:
#mysql -u root -p
4. Install phpMyAdmin successful
using web browser to login: http://localhost/phpMyAdmin
to create a database, user (called ABC), as well as password for this user.
5 Install phpbb package (pacman -S phpbb)
The problem is that when try to install phpbb in :http://localhost/phpbb/install/install.php i got the error message:
"The PHP configuration on your server doesn't support the database type that you chose"
I tried to remove apache, php, mysql and installed again but it didn't help even when i try to update the whole system (pacman -Suy).
Can anyone give me a clue to fix this error ? i got stuck with this problem for many days.
Thank you very much!
